There’s a lot to like about the PlayStation 4, but one of its strongest assets is how social it is. Unlike the PlayStation 3, the console makes it easy to keep track of your friends – and that’s about to get a lot simpler, as Sony has switched back on the ‘What’s New’ feed. This was disabled during the European launch window in order to help cope with the demand, but now that the swell of sudden PlayStation Network connections has passed, the platform holder has opted to reinstate the feature.
For those out of the loop, the abovementioned area acts as a hub updating you on your friends’ in-game activities. It includes Trophy information, game bulletins, shared screenshots, and more. It’s a real neat addition that helps keep you connected to what your buddies are up to, but we’re not especially big fans of the way in which the information is presented. In fact, a fix for this appears in our list of most wanted firmware updates. What are your thoughts on the ‘What’s New’ feature? Broadcast yourself in the comments section below.
